Marie Coppola and Diane Lillo-Martin in UConn Magazine

The research conducted by Marie Coppola and Diane Lillo-Martin is featured in the current issue (September 2016) of the UConn Magazine: The Case for Bilingual Deaf Children. Congratulations Marie and Diane!

Abstract:

Marie Coppola and a number of other researchers at UConn want to understand the science behind how early access to language affects learning in deaf and hearing children. Deaf children are just as intellectually capable as hearing children— but if they do not have early access to language and communication, that intellectual capacity can quickly erode.
